Make sure that your gauge wheels are not running on the ground during mowing,they should only hit the ground when you engage a high spot on one side.also when you level the deck the front should be a 1/2" lower than the rear.

John deere 717a shut-off while mowing


Mine took a Poo this evening. It's a 717A Z turn and it's run just fine for 4 years but tonight it kinda Popped (like something broke) while under a slight load and then shut off. Oil level was slightly low and curious if I blew the engine. It still cranks just fine but won't fire off? Acts like it's not getting fuel but the filters are all clear and fuel flows. It's my Church's mower and the Blue hairs are gonna kill me if I blew the engine.............I'm toast!

John Deere X304 PTO Engagement Problem When Warm


Hi, check your belt tension, check all idler pulleys and drive pulleys for free rotation with the belt off and finally check that the belt is not bottoming out in any of the drive pulleys. If so, replace the belt. The blades should come up to speed imediately wether hot or cold and it sounds like your belt is slipping in one or more of the pulleys which drags the motor revs down until it grips. Regards Phil.

My mowers cuts uneven I replaced the blades but it still cuts uneven how can I level it?


Park mower on a level flat surface ( a concrete garage floor is ideal ) lift deck up until you can put a piece of a 2x4 flat underneath the deck and lower deck until it just contacts the 2x4. loosen adjustment nuts or turnbuckles and adjust until the deck just starts to clear the 2x4. this should level your deck. Now , lift the deck and remove the 2x4. put blade height lever on a known cut length and with a tape measure, measure the tips of the blades from the floor to the blade tip...they should all be the same within 1/8 of an inch...if not then you either have a bent blade, bent spindle shaft, or spindle bolts are loose or misaligned. Your deck could be warped too...depending on how hard a lick it took...good luck !!! ;-D

Mowes unevenly. Blades don't match up.


make sure when you replaced the spindles that you used all the washers and spacer bushings back identical to the ones you took off.
Make sure your deck isnt bent for some reason where the spindles mount and or the deck itself
level the deck when its on the mower on a level suface,side to side(level) back to front the back just a little higher than the front 3/8 inch or less
proper air pressure in all 4 tires
Also you could add a washer or take away a waher to allow the blades to become level at mid point meeting?
be sure to torque the blade bolts to 35 ft.lbs also
